We can accommodate your group and facilitate your requirements, call us to see how we can help.

This Event caters for everyone - the social, recreational and competitive runners, who like to enjoy sandy white beaches, turquoise lagoons and lush tropical hilly terrain in this unique and scenically beautiful environment. This is a fantastic opportunity to combine a holiday with an achievement…and the kids will LOVE IT!

The main event is the 31km round island road race set for Saturday 24th September 2022 and also includes a shorter course in the 10km race which is popular local challenge.

But that’s not all – the Round Raro Road Race includes a number of other running events to help you make the most of your visit to paradise including a 5km Fun Run, Hash House Harriers birthday run, Round the Rock teams relay and the totally mad Nutters Cross Island Run which starts in Titikaveka and heads over mountain ridges, across rugged valleys and riverbeds down to the Avatiu Coastline. This particular run however, is not for the fainthearted and with the record still unbeaten at 45 minutes, promises to be an exciting challenge and a great spectator event. Some races have ‘themes’, while some have a bit of dress-up fun.
